Josh Files confirms TCR Germany campaign with new Opel run by Target

Former Clio UK and Eurocup champion Josh Files announced earlier today on Twitter he will take part in the new ADAC TCR Germany with Target Competition, at the wheel of the new Opel Astra TCR.

The move seems to confirm that the Italian team, which won the teams’ championship in the inaugural TCR International Series, will make the switch to Opel machinery after a long story with SEAT, which includes taking both titles in the first ever TCR International Series.

Files was present in Macau at last year’s season finale, although the Brit was driving for Campos Racing at the time. Despite the lack of track time due to accidents and technical problems, the former Clio Cup UK champion still showed promising pace on a difficult track such as Macau.

Josh Files spent the 2015 season driving in the Italian Clio Cup for Rangoni Motorsport, finishing third in the championship.
